A True Prophet of God

To find out if Ellen White was a true prophet of God, we first need to find out from the Bible what a true prophet was like. There are certain characteristics of a Bible prophet. So let’s take a look through them and then find out if Ellen White fulfilled these “marks of a prophet”.

A True Prophet“When the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known.” (Jeremiah 28:9)

“He shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak.” (John 16:13)

“But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the LORD .. to declare to Israel his sin.” (Micah 3:8)

“And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me.” (Jeremiah 1:16)

“Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.” (1 John 4:2)

“Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16)

“He shall speak unto them all that I command him.” (Deuteronomy 18:18)

So we have a list of charateristics that help us know if a prophet is truly a prophet of God. So the prophecies of a true prophet will of course come to pass. A true prophet will not speak of themselves, but will bring glory to God. A true prophet will point out sin. A true prophet will speak of coming judgments. A true prophet will proclaim that Jesus came in the flesh as fully human, capable of sin. A true prophet will have a good Christian character. And a true prophet will be obedient to the will of God.

So does Ellen White fulfill these marks of a true prophet? Well, before we go on, the first thing I would like to confirm is that a woman CAN be a prophet of God. The reason I want to confirm this is because there are some people who reject Ellen White straight away because she is a woman, and they believe that God only uses men as prophets. Well, this thinking is in direct opposition to God’s Word, because there were a number of prophetesses in the Old Testament, including Miriam, Deborah, Huldah, and Noadiah. So God DOES use women as His prophets also.

Any Prophets After Jesus?

Another point that some people raise against Ellen White is that there were to be no more prophets after the time of Christ Jesus. This we can deal with swiftly from the Bible.

Acts 11:27-28 …’And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.’

Ephesians 4:11-12 …’And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.’

1 Corinthians 12:28 …’And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.’

Joel 2:28 …’And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.’

So would God use prophets after the time of Christ Jesus? Most definately yes.

Did Ellen White Fulfill the Marks of a Prophet?

So, was Ellen White a prophet, and did she fulfill the marks of a true prophet from the Bible? Yes, in every way. Ellen White ProphetThe main point that many people focus on is the one to do with visions from God and prophecies, so we will focus on that point the most. But let me confirm before we go into her visions and predictions, that Ellen White fulfilled all other points. If you read her writings, rather than take a text here and there out of context like many opposers do, you will see that Ellen White brought Glory to God and pointed the people to study the Bible first and foremost.

“The Lord desires you to study your Bibles. He has not given any additional light to take the place of His Word. This light [her own ministry] is to bring confused minds to His Word, which, if eaten and digested, is as the lifeblood of the soul.” (E.G.White, Selected Messages, book 3, p. 29)

“We must gather about the cross. Christ and Him crucified should be the theme of contemplation, of conversation, and of our most joyful emotion.” (E.G.White, Steps to Christ, P.103 – 104)

“Make Christ first and last and best in everything. Constantly behold Him, and your love for Him will daily become deeper and stronger as it is submitted to the test of trial.” (E.G.White, Testimonies, Vol.7, P.46)

“The object of all ministry is to keep self out of sight, and to let Christ appear. The exaltation of Christ is the great truth that all who labor in word and doctrine are to reveal.” (E.G.White, Manuscript Releases, Vol.16, P.295)

As you can see, Ellen White’s main focus was Christ Jesus and to bring glory to God. She also devoted much writing to point out sin and proclaim God’s eternal law found in the ten commandments. She spoke much about the judgments that would come upon the world. And she truly declared that Jesus Christ was fully human on earth. And what about her character? Did she live a good Christian life, in line with the Word of God? Take a look at the following comments:

“She was absolutely honest in her belief in her revelations. Her life was worthy of them. She showed no spiritual pride and she sought no filthy lucre. She lived the life and did the work of a worthy prophetess.” (New York “Independent”, 1915).

“Mrs. White’s life far transcends the life of anyone I have ever known or with whom I have been associated. She was uniformly pleasant, cheerful and courageous. She was never careless, flippant, or in any way cheap in conversation or manner of life. She was the personification of serious earnestness regarding the things of the kingdom. I never once heard her boast of the gracious gift God had bestowed upon her, or of the marvelous results of her endeavors.” (A. G. Daniells, A Co-Worker for 23 Years)

Ellen White was generous, kind, and honest. She exemplified the Christian virtues she wrote about. For instance, despite the potential of living extravagantly off the royalties of her written work, she passed much of it on to spread the gospel and further the kingdom of God. Financially supporting church projects, and helping students attend Christian schools.

And what about the effect of her writings upon those who read them with an open mind? Well, in reviewing the chief findings of the 1980 research done by the Institute of Church Ministry at Andrews University, it is noted that Seventh-day Adventists “who regularly study the writings of Ellen White are also more likely to be stronger Christians in their personal spiritual life and in their witness to their communities than those church members who don’t.” (Ministry, October 1982, p. 10)

Did Ellen White fulfill the marks of a true prophet? She certainly did. But we still need to take a look at her visions and predictions.

Predictions and Visions of Ellen White

Ellen White had so many visions, of which you can read about in her volumes of writings, we could not go through them here. So we will share with you some of the most extraordinary predictions and visions from this humble woman of God. But first let me clear up a common misunderstanding about Ellen White. Many people seem to believe that it was Ellen White who prophesied about Jesus returning in 1844. This is incorrect, as it was a man named William Miller who came up with this prediction from what He understood of Bible prophecy in the book of Daniel. This was concerning the 2300 day prophecy, which reveals the beginning of God’s end time remnant church.

So now that is cleared up, let us take a look at Ellen White’s visions and predictions. To start with, where there any clear indicators concerning Ellen White’s visions that tell us they were of Divine origin? Yes there were. If you take a look at Daniel, chapter 10, you will see Daniel in vision and he says … “neither is there breath left in me.” So we could say that Daniel did not breathe while in vision. Take a look at what happened with Ellen White while in vision …

Dr. Drummond, a local physician who had once declared her visions were the product of mesmerism, jumped at the opportunity to examine her while in vision. After giving her a thorough examination, he turned very pale and remarked, “She doesn’t breathe.” Skeptics would pinch both her nostrils and mouth, and even hold a mirror before her mouth while she was in vision. Both techniques proved that she simply didn’t breathe while in a vision, not even when she spoke!

In another incident, a physician named Dr. Brown claimed that her visions were the product of spiritualism, and that he could control them. When the opportunity arose, Dr. Brown examined her, but before it was complete, he turned deathly pale and began to shake. “She does not breathe,” he shuddered, making his way to the door. The people at the door said, “Go back, and do as you said you would; bring that woman out of vision.” But the doctor, sufficiently spooked, grabbed the doorknob. “Doctor, what is it?” the people at the door persisted. “God only knows,” he replied.

Let us get this one fact straight. These are eye witness accounts of what happened while Ellen White was in vision, which happened many times. And Satan DOES NOT have the power to stop someone breathing for such a long time (sometimes it was for HOURS!!) and keep them alive. This could ONLY be from God Himself.

So let’s take a look at her visions and predictions.

VISION: – For a number of years, Ellen White received warnings of impending judgment upon Earthquake ProphecySan Francisco. But she had her final and most detailed vision regarding its destruction on April 16, 1906. She saw houses “shaken like a reed in the wind” and buildings falling to the ground. “Pleasure resorts, theaters, hotels, and homes of the wealthy were shaken and shattered. Many lives were blotted out of existence, and the air was filled with the shrieks of the injured and the terrified. The awfulness of the scenes that passed before me I cannot find words to describe.” (E.G.White, Selected Messages, Book 3, P.40-41). Historical accounts reveal that two days later there was no sign of impending doom until 5:12 a.m. At that time the San Andreas fault slipped over nearly 300 miles, crumbling the very foundations of the city. In its wake, the quake left 490 city blocks in a state of total devastation and more than 227,000 homeless people, along with over 3000 dead.

VISION: – Another vison Ellen White had was concerning the civil war in America. The time she had the vision was 3 months before the civil war began, and she stated …

American Civil War“There is not a person in this house who has even dreamed of the trouble that is coming upon this land. People are making sport of the secession ordinance of South Carolina, but I have just been shown that a large number of States are going to join that State, and there will be a most terrible war. In this vision I have seen large armies of both sides gathered on the field of battle. I heard the booming of the cannon, and saw the dead and dying on every hand. Then I saw them rushing up engaged in hand-to-hand fighting [bayoneting one another]. Then I saw the field after the battle, all covered with the dead and dying. Then I was carried to prison, and saw the suffering of those in want, who were wasting away. Then I was taken to the homes of those who had lost husbands, sons, or brothers in the war. I saw there distress and anguish.” … Then she looked around the room to those who were with her and said … “There are those in this house who will lose sons in that war.” (E.G.White, Remarks at Parkville, Michigan, January 31, 1893) – General Conference Daily Bulletin., 2002, S. 37)

When Ellen White revealed this vision, the common view was that war was unlikely. And even if it came, it would be brief and result in few casualties. Yet what Ellen White said was fulfilled and extremely accurate.

VISION: – In another vision, Ellen white even foretold the two great world wars, when she said …

“I was shown the inhabitants of the earth in the utmost confusion. There was war, bloodshed, want, privation, famine and pestilence, in the land … My attention was then called from the scene. There seemed to be a little time of peace. Then the inhabitants of the earth were again presented before me, and everything was in the utmost confusion again. Strife, war and bloodshed, with famine and pestilence, raged everywhere. Other nations were engaged in this confusion and war. War caused famine. Want and bloodshed caused pestilence. And then men’s hearts will fail them for fear, “and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.” (E.G.White, Review and Herald, August 27, 1861.)

This vision was given to Ellen white some 50 years before world war I began in 1914. And look at the striking points World Warof her vision. First, war would rage between the “inhabitants of the earth”. Then there would be a “little time of peace”. Then war would rage again, with “other nations” joining the war. And that these wars would cause great bloodshed and famine.

1. World War I (1914-1918)

2. Little Time of Peace (1918-1939)

3. World War II (1939-1945)

As we know, the whole world was involved in World War I and II, with a “little time of peace” in between. And the loss of life through the fighting and resultant famine was immense. With numbers up in the region of 70 million being killed by these wars. Another vision fulfilled.

Ellen White Health Claims

Ellen White was also an inspired health advocate, and gave many predictions concerning health and the future consumption of certain foods and substances. Below we will list a few.

CLAIM:“Tobacco is a slow, insidious, but most malignant poison. In whatever form it is used, it tells upon Smoking Visionthe constitution; it is all the more dangerous because its effects are slow and at first hardly perceptible. It excites and then paralyzes the nerves. It weakens and clouds the brain. Often it affects the nerves in a more powerful manner than does intoxicating drink. It is more subtle, and its effects are difficult to eradicate from the system. Its use excites a thirst for strong drink and in many cases lays the foundation for the liquor habit.” (E.G.White, Ministry of Healing, P.327)

Now you may look at this and think, “BIG DEAL!!, we all know smoking is bad for you!”. But you need to take into account that Ellen White made this inspired claim in the 1860’s, when cigar smoking was in fact prescribed to people for “HEALTH BENEFITS”, and it wasn’t until 1957 that the American Cancer Society concluded that smoking was a CONTRIBUTOR in causing lung cancer.

Please remember as you read through this that Ellen White did not receive a “formal education” and was forced to leave school before she was a teenager.”

CLAIM: – Ellen White claimed that cancer was a “germ” and that it was due to poor diet, eating things like animal flesh that was becoming more and more diseased … “If meat eating was ever healthful, it is not safe now. Cancers, tumors, and pulmonary diseases are largely caused by meat eating.” (E.G.White, Counsels on Health, P.133). Now it wasn’t until 1956 that the “germ” theory had been proven by Dr. Wendell Stanley, a Virologist at the University of California. And today, any health expert who truly cares about what people eat will tell you that the majority of animals are now either diseased or so full of steroids and drugs, that the meat is not safe to eat anymore.

“Worldly physicians cannot account for the rapid increase of disease among the human family. But we know that much of this suffering is caused by the eating of dead flesh.” (E.G.White, Counsels on Diets and Foods, P.386)

CLAIM:“The light given me is that it will not be very long before we shall have to give up any animal food. Even milk will have to be discarded. Disease is accumulating rapidly. The curse of God is upon the earth, because man has cursed it.” (E.G.White, Counsels on Diet and Foods, P.357, (1899)

And we can now thank a Physician by the name of Robert Cohen, amongst others, for giving us the facts about milk (Not Milk). Confirming the claim that Ellen White made all those years ago. Take a look at what Robert Cohen says about Ellen White. And just to confirm, Robert Cohen is not a Seventh Day Adventist.

“I have the advantage of citing scientific studies from peer-reviewed studies to work into my daily columns. Ellen G. White just “knew” milk did not do the body any good. Her visions were divinely inspired.” (Robert Cohen, notmilk.com)

“Through a 70-year writing and speaking career, Ellen White spoke about clarity. How beautifully we can combine her religious insights with today’s scientific evidence. We know that milk protein, casein, triggers the production of histamines. After eating cheese or ice cream, one manufactures mucus, and plenty of it. The kidneys, pancreas, lungs, thymus–all fill with viscous mucus. Collectively, the human body and organs become congested with 3-4 quarts of mucus which result in an “internal fog.” (Robert Cohen, notmilk.com)

CLAIM:“Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, Health Predictionprepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible, are the most healthful and nourishing. They impart a strength, a power of endurance, and a vigor of intellect, that are not afforded by a more complex and stimulating diet.” (E.G.White, Counsels on Diet and Foods, P.81)

Again, this claim does not seem that impressive today. But it is only recently that the world has discovered the benefits of eating natural foods like fruit, vegetables and grains etc. And secular studies have proven that people who live on a vegetarian or vegan diet tend to live at least 10 years longer than those who eat meat and dairy products. And notice that Ellen White also says that we should prepare these foods in as NATURAL a way as possible. Meaning do not destroy the goodness in them by cooking and processing them to death. Again, health experts today who are worth their salt will tell you that the more natural the state of the product (uncooked and unprocessed), the better it is for you.

Conclusion

There can be no doubt to any mind that is open to see the truth that Ellen White was a messenger of God and a true prophet. Contrary to all modern “prophets” who give their “best predictions” every January, or the perennial Nostradamuses who state their predictions so vaguely that they can be reinterpreted and made to fit as time passes. Ellen White’s visions, claims and previews of closing events have never been contradicted by events. Today’s economic insecurity, political strife, social unrest, decline in moral values, New Age revival of spiritualism, and the worldwide interest in religious unity, are an astonishing fulfillment of her predictions.

Her health claims given over 100 years ago are on par with those given by experts today who have access to huge amounts of research. And her predictions that have not yet been fulfilled, we can now see are beginning to happen. The Sunday Law being one of them. Was Ellen White a prophet of God? The proof is in, and there can be no doubt. Ellen White was a true prophet.

Please note, you will come across websites that attack Ellen White. There you will find quotes that have been taken completely out of context and twisted to suit their preconceived attacks. Please do not be deceived by these websites. Please see the below 3 websites which deal with in great detail the attacks and misconceptions about Ellen White:

Ellen White Defend      Ellen White Info      Ellen White Issues

A True Prophet“The weight of evidence points decisively to the trustworthiness of Ellen White’s twin witness – her life and ministry. The integrity of her character was recognized by contemporaries, whether Adventists or not. The intense focus of her ministry in revealing the charm, reality, and power of Jesus was recognized by those within and without her church. Any attempt to accept either her life without her ministry, or her ministry without her life, seems irrational. As Edward Heppenstall put it: “It is impossible to place a high value upon her life and character and a low value upon her writings.” (WhiteEstate.org)

Dengue fever: How a mosquito infected millions, and not with malaria

Image result for mosquito

(CNN)A bite from a single mosquito can result in fever, headaches, and pain. Severe cases can experience a multitude of symptoms including bleeding, shock, organ failure — and potentially death.

There is no treatment or vaccine and no real means of protecting yourself in countries endemic for the disease.

Though affected countries were once few, today more than 100 harbor the risk of infection — putting more than half the world’s population at risk and resulting in 50 million infections each year.

The infection is Dengue — formerly known as “break-bone fever” because of the severe joint points it causes — and it’s spread by one of nature’s toughest, most versatile mosquitoes — and it’s not the one that spreads malaria.

Coexisting with humans

“It lives, eats and breathes humans” says Duane Gubler, professor of Infectious Diseases at Duke University Medical School, Singapore. Gubler has been working on Dengue control for more than 45 years and founded the Dengue Branch of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). He has witnessed the epidemic expanding globally — through the opportunistic mosquitoes harboring the disease.

“Urbanization provided the ideal ecology for these mosquitoes,” says Gubler, referring to the increased density of populations as people flock to cities in search of employment, bringing with them endless supplies of blood for pregnant mosquitoes that need to nourish their eggs.

The villain carrying the Dengue virus is the Aedes mosquito and it comes in two forms: Aedes Aegyti and Aedes albopictus, with the former causing the greatest degree of infection. “They’ve become highly urbanized and highly adapted to humans,” says Gubler.

This species can also carry the virus behind other diseases such as Yellow fever, chikungunya and lymphatic filariasis. But Dengue is the disease that has spread most widely. Their success lies in their ability to bite during the day — unlike the mosquitoes harboring malaria — meaning they’re difficult to avoid.

<!–

 “Using bed nets isn’t particularly useful for Dengue,” says Harold Margolis, current chief of the CDC’s Dengue branch. Bed nets have proven critical in the fight against malaria as the Anopheles species of the mosquito, which carries the malaria parasite, bites primarily at night.

Whilst people can cover up or resort to repellant, Margolis advises people in affected regions to simply tidy up. Any form of container in which shallow water can accumulate provides the perfect breeding ground for a female mosquito in search of a place to lay her eggs. “They can breed anywhere,” says Margolis — including the surface of trash cans, containers and used tires. “Anything that collects water will allow mosquitoes to reproduce in that water,” he says.

Easy breeders

Surface water, human blood and warm temperatures provide the perfect environment for these mosquitoes to flourish.

With no drug or vaccine yet available, the main form of disease prevention to date has been mosquito control — through the large-scale spraying of insecticides. The chemicals have been deployed in both residential and public spaces in a mass culling of the insects spreading the disease, taking other diseases carried by these mosquitoes with them. But the sprays haven’t been able to beat their versatile opponents — especially with humans further aiding the spread of infection.

“It’s people who move the infection around,” says Margolis.

Up to 75% of those infected never develop symptoms of Dengue, making it easy for the virus to be transported as people move around. When someone carrying the virus in their blood enters an area native for Aedes mosquitoes, they bring with them the potential to spread the disease. “Travelers come back with it and you get small outbreaks,” says Margolis.

In October 2012, an outbreak of Dengue occurred in Madeira, Portugal, resulting in 18 confirmed and more than 190 potential infections in a country where the disease is not normally found.

“Dengue is responsible for about 10% of people who come back from holiday with a temperature,” says Erik Sloan, an infectious disease clinician at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, in the UK, who has seen a rise in the number of cases he’s treating. “We see more patients with Dengue than we did 10 or 20 years ago,” he says. The challenge for medics like Sloan is both diagnosing the disease, as many other infections cause fevers, and managing his patients when there is no treatment available.

Treating patients requires close monitoring in case the infection progresses to the more severe form of the disease, with symptoms such as internal bleeding and multiple organ failure. “Normally there’s a high chance you’ll be completely fine,” says Sloan. But he doesn’t get complacent. “If severe, there is a 12% risk of mortality,” he adds.

But despite its low mortality rate and ability to go unnoticed, Dengue has become a public health problem across the globe. Before 1960, only pockets of South America and south-east Asia were at risk of the disease, but now it is present across all continents.

Gubler blames it on international travel.

“What we’ve seen coincides perfectly with the advent of the jet airplane,” he says. The airplane is instrumental in transporting the virus — and the mosquito — to new populations with no immunity to the disease. “Three billion people will get on an airplane and travel somewhere in 2015,” he adds.

Air travel has also aided the movement of people towards urban centers and increased density in cities worldwide. More than half the world’s population currently live in cities and this figure is expected to reach 70% by 2050.

What can be done?

“Dengue is one of the diseases we haven’t been so successful in tackling or curbing,” says Dirk Engels, director of the Neglected Tropical Diseases department at the World Health Organization. “We don’t have easy tools to curb the spread of Dengue,” he says.

Engels hopes collaborations with pesticide producers could enable better designed programs to kill mosquitoes in the field. Another — more novel — strategy is the use of sterilized male mosquitoes to prevent future breeding.

“We’ve got to prevent transmission,” warns Gubler. In his eyes, the tools needed are mosquito control, drugs and a vaccine — the latter of which is now starting to show promise in terms of protection.

Six vaccines against Dengue have reached clinical trial stages to date and Gubler predicts three of the lead candidates will soon be licensed. Leading the way is pharmaceutical company Sanofi, whose vaccine was shown to cut incidence of the virus by 61% in late-stage trials.

This level of protection is enough to make a difference. “Even though it’s only partially effective, they’ll have public health utility,” says Gubler, who describes the search for a drug to treat the disease as a long road, with no trials for their efficacy reached just yet — but he’s hopeful.

“In the next three to five years we’ll see one or more antivirals come on as well,” he says.

With drugs and vaccines finally in the pipeline, the disease could be tackled head on — but not stopped completely.

“We’ll never eradicate it,” says Gubler. “But if we can use these new tools, we can control it as a public health problem.”

What is the Beast Mark?

 

A Beast 

It is my fervent prayer that you will carefully study this issue concerning the mark of the beast, because we are dealing with the arch deceiver in Satan. Revelation 13:14 says that Satan will deceive the world into worshipping him. Do you think this is just a simple case of a microchip being enforced upon us? No, a microchip isn’t a ‘deception’.

‘Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision’. (Joel 3:14)

There are two beasts in Revelation 13. The “earth” beast is the one who enforces the mark, and the “sea” beast is the one who’s mark it is. Evidence suggests that America is the Earth Beast and there is undeniable proof showing that the sea beast is the Papacy. So what is the mark? It must be the “mark” of the Roman Catholic Church.

Is the Mark of the Beast a Microchip?

Let’s quickly look at this theory of the mark being a chip or some sort of technology. There is one big problem with this theory which most Christians miss. If the government forced upon you a chip or ID card or whatever, would that stop you from worshipping God in spirit and truth, or would it stop you from keeping His commandments? Of course not! How could God reject you for just receiving (forcibly) a chip or ID card, even though you are still loving, obeying and serving Him? It’s not possible. The only way to receive the mark would be to go against God and His Commandments, and give your allegiance to the beast instead of God. This issue is all to do with WORSHIP.

Now could a chip or ID card be used by the beast system to keep track of people in the end times? Could this technology be used to stop those of us who refuse the mark of the beast from “buying and selling”? (Rev. 13:17) Yes! But in of itself, technology CANNOT, and I cannot stress this strong enough, CANNOT be the beasts mark that causes the undiluted wrath of God.

God is not concerned with material things. After all, He is a Spirit and is concerned with spiritual matters. He is concerned with how we worship Him, because He is seeking those who worship in spirit and truth. Please think very carefully about this issue, so that you will not be deceived like so many will be. Satan is the arch deceiver, and He is using all his spiritual powers to deceive the world into taking the mark of the beast. But how deceiving would it be to just enforce a microchip or card as the mark? Not deceiving at all. What does Revelation 13:14 say?

Revelation 13:14 …’And he DECEIVED them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do.’

The real mark of the beast must be a spiritual mark that is received as a result of us going against God and His law. It cannot be a physical mark. Please understand this. Satan is going to deceive the world into accepting a law of the Roman Catholic beast, which will go against the law of our Creator God. Take a look at what the result of receiving this mark will be.

Revelation 14:9-10 …’And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.’

Did you see what it said? The angel represents Gods messengers on earth, and they are saying that the mark of the beast is to do with WORSHIP! Anyone who “worships” the beast, by accepting its laws and traditions over the law of God will receive its mark. Therefore those who receive the beasts mark will be those who follow the beast (Roman Catholic Church), or its image (church-state union in America) instead of God. And they will be thrown into the lake of fire. The world has a choice to make in the last days, and the choice is to either obey God, or obey satan and his beast.

But the word “Mark” in Revelation 13 means a literal mark!

Yes, and so does the word “beast” in Revelation 13 mean a literal beast. And the “dragon” in Revelation 12 mean a literal dragon. And the “harlot woman” in Revelation 17, riding a “scarlet beast” means a literal prostitute woman riding a literal red beast. And so on…

Are we now to say that we will have literal beasts roaming the earth forcing the world to worship them? And a literal prostitute riding a beast, causing the world to follow her? No. Revelation is FULL of symbolic language. And just because the meaning of a certain word points to the literal thing itself. Doesn’t mean it will be literal in real life. It’s symbolic. Same applies to the mark of the beast.

God’s Law and the Mark of the Beast

God's LawHow do we know that receiving the mark of the beast is a result of going against God’s law?

Revelation 14:12 …’Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.’

Straight after the third angel warns of receiving the beast’s mark, he announces that those who don’t receive the mark are those who are KEEPING GODS COMMANDMENTS and the faith of Jesus. In other words, the true remnant church of God are those who follow in Jesus’ footsteps, and what did Jesus say? … John 15:10 …’If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.’ … Are we not to follow Jesus? The sad thing is, the truth of God’s law has been cast down by satan and many professing Christians are deceived into thinking that keeping God’s Ten Commandments is not important.

Now we know from Revelation 13 that the beast’s mark is received either in the forehead or in the hand … Revelation 13:16 …’And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.’ … There is also another set of people that have a mark on their foreheads … Revelation 14:1 …’And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.’

So during the last days we have two sets of people. One with the beast’s mark and one with God’s name written on their foreheads. Now will these people be walking around with a literal mark on their foreheads, or the name of God actually written on their foreheads? I don’t believe so, I believe these marks will be spiritual ones. Remember, the book of Revelation is full of symbolic language. Take the harlot women for instance in Revelation 17:3,5 …’and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.’ … Is this going to be a literal prostitute riding a literal beast with those names on her forehead? Of course not, this is symbolic, just like the mark of the beast and the seal of God.

Is there any significance to receiving the mark in the forehead or hand? Yes there is, which we can see from the following Old Testament scripture.

Deuteronomy 6:6-8 …..’And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.’

Deuteronomy 11:8,18 …..’Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it. Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.’

What does it mean to bind Gods Words, His law upon our hands and foreheads? God wasn’t asking them to literally write them on their hands and heads. He wanted them to keep His Commandments in their minds to stop them from sinning.

Did you know that the front of our brain (forehead) is where our thoughts and decisions are made?

The hand represents our actions. So if the people had the mark of Gods law in their hands and foreheads, then it meant that they were keeping Gods law in their minds spiritually, through their thoughts and decisions, the way Jesus taught us, and also in their actions.

Hebrews 10:16 …..’This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.’

God would ‘seal’ His law in the hearts (minds) of His people, and they would be the one’s keeping God’s ten Commandments and would not be deceived into receiving the mark of the beast.

Isaiah 8:16 …..’Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.’

Remember, Bible prophecy reveals that we would have two groups of people during the end times. One group of people with the seal of God, and the other group with the mark of the beast. In other words, we will have one group who will yield their minds and actions to the beast, and have the beasts mark, and another group that will yield their minds and actions to God and have Gods seal. Or His name spiritually written in their foreheads. To understand this further, we need to find out what the truth is about the name of God. Is it just a set of words, or does it have a deeper meaning to it?

Exodus 34:5-7 …..’And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.’

Do you see the truth about the name of God in the above verses? God proclaimed His Name to Moses on Mount Sinai. But God didn’t tell Moses to command people to use certain words for His Name. No, the name that God proclaimed was His CHARACTER! – merciful, gracious, forgiving, longsuffering etc. God reveals that the ‘name of the Lord’ is His character, Just as Jesus confirmed … John 17:6 …’I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.’ … Jesus didn’t just go around pronouncing the words of Gods name in the correct way. He displayed and proclaimed Gods character in His life. So now we can see that when it says in Revelation that the one group of people have Gods name in their foreheads, it means that Gods character has become a deep part of their lives, thinking and actions. The same way as the other group of people have given their thoughts and actions to the beast and receive the beasts mark.

As we mentioned earlier, the sea beast of Revelation 13 is the Papal Church of Rome (Roman Catholic Church), and the mark of the beast is the mark of the Roman Catholic Church. Out of interest, let’s ask the Roman Catholic Church if they have any kind of “mark” that goes against the law of God.

“Of course the change (from Sabbath to Sunday) was her act …. and the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters.” (signed by H.F.Thomas, Chancellor for Cardinal Gibbons, in a letter dated Nov. 11, 1895)

“the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.” (Catholic record of London, Ontario, Sept. 1, 1923)

“Sunday is a time when all Christians discover the Eucharist form that their life is called to have … the Cardinal stressed how the way in which we celebrate Sunday determines the way in which we live the rest of the week, since it is the mark of Christian identity.” (Cardinal O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston, Sanctifying celebration, the family in the Lord’s Day, 1st June 2012)

WOW! Right out of the horses mouth! So if the beast is the Roman Catholic Church, what does she say is her “mark”? Changing commandment number 4 from the seventh day (our Saturday) to Sunday is her MARK! The Roman Catholic Church believe that changing the Sabbath Day from the seventh day to the first is her “MARK” of authority. The Roman Catholic Church is also the little horn power in Daniel that “thinks to change times and laws” (Daniel 7:25). So this fits with Bible prophecy also.

Is Sunday the Mark of the Beast?

There’s a very interesting connection that many people miss with this issue. If you read Revelation 13:16-17, you will see that the mark of the beast is connected to “buying and selling”. Now something we need to understand is that there is a great spiritual war between Christ and Satan. Satan is the great deceiver, and through his miracles and wonders (Revelation 13:13-14) he manages to DECEIVE virtually the whole world (professing Christians included). And how does he deceive the masses? By counterfeiting God and transforming himself into an “angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Satan has a counterfeit for just about everything found in the Word of God. And he has managed to deceive virtually the whole world on one particular point in Gods ten commandments.

Now notice this very carefully. In Revelation 13 we find a certain LAW being enforced. And it is connected to “buying and selling”. If you keep this “law” of Satan and receive the mark, then you will be able to “buy and sell”. Now do we find anything in Gods law concerning buying and selling, that Satan can counterfeit and deceive the people? Yes! The 4th commandment …

Exodus 20:8-11 …’Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.’

So God tells us in the 4th commandment that on the sabbath day, “business transactions” (work) is forbidden. Which means that Gods people are NOT to do any “buying or selling” on the sabbath. So what Satan has done is to introduce a counterfeit sabbath day through the Roman Catholic Church (Sunday), and when the time is right, he will have the Sunday law enforced, so that only those who accept the false sabbath can continue to “buy and sell”.

“Therefore, also in the particular circumstances of our own time, Christians will naturally strive to ensure that civil legislation respects their duty to keep Sunday holy.” (John Paul II, Dies Domini, 1998)

Virtually the whole professed Christian world has embraced this false sabbath (Sunday), and they are ripe to be deceived by the evil one into taking the mark of the beast. But Sunday keeping AT THIS MOMENT is not the mark of the beast. It needs to be enforced as a day of rest by civil law in order for it to become the mark of the beast. And this is what the Roman Catholic Church are pushing for right now. But that doesn’t mean you can rest easy for the time being. Once you come to the truth, you need to live by it. Otherwise, God may withdraw His Spirit from your life and you will be in danger of becoming entangled in the deceptions of Satan, not having the power to overcome.

Note: Will God’s people be safe by just keeping the seventh day sabbath commandment? No. We need to keep all of God’s ten commandments, AND the faith of Jesus Christ (Revelation 14:12).

RAPID PUSH TO THE END!!!!

 

 

 While the world sleeps, the prophecies of the greatest book ever 

(the Bible) are being fulfilled.

Too many of  God’s people are are in the same sleepy attitude,and unless they awake out of their slumber the Lord will come to them as a thief in the night.For those who study the word of God, the announcement from the pope is no surprise as it was foretold, and now my friends, this to me is the last call for all to get their house in order; that which is to happen, will happen…(Revelation 17…Read)

 

1-5 (chs. 13:11-17; 18:1-5; 2 Thess. 2:7-12). 

Deceiver of All Nations.–In the seventeenth of Revelation is foretold the destruction of all the churches who corrupt themselves by idolatrous devotion to the service of the papacy, those who have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. [Rev. 17:1-4 quoted.]  {7BC 983.3}
     Thus is represented the papal power, which with all deceivableness of unrighteousness, by outside attraction and gorgeous display, deceives all nations; promising them, as did Satan our first parents, all good to those who receive its mark, and all harm to those who oppose its fallacies. The power which has the deepest inward corruption will make the greatest display, and will clothe itself with the most elaborate signs of power. The Bible plainly declares that this covers a corrupt and deceiving wickedness. “Upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.”  {7BC 983.4}


What is it that gives its kingdom to this power? Protestantism, a power which, while professing to have the temper and spirit of a lamb and to be allied to Heaven, speaks with the voice of a dragon. It is moved by a power from beneath (Letter 232, 1899).  {7BC 983.5}
     13, 14 (chs. 13:11-17; 16:13-16). A Confederacy of Satan’s Forces.[Rev. 17:13, 14 quoted.] “These have one mind.” There will be a universal bond of union, one great harmony, a confederacy of Satan’s forces. “And shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” Thus is manifested the same arbitrary, oppressive power against religious liberty, freedom to worship God according to the dictates of conscience, as was manifested by the papacy, when in the past it persecuted those who dared to refuse to conform with the religious rites and ceremonies of Romanism.  {7BC 983.6}

 In the warfare to be waged in the last days there will be united, in opposition to God’s people, all the corrupt powers that have apostatized from allegiance to the law of Jehovah. In this warfare the Sabbath of the fourth commandment will be the great point at issue; for in the Sabbath commandment the great Lawgiver identifies Himself as the Creator of the heavens and the earth (MS 24, 1891).  {7BC 983.7}
     14. Christ Glorified in the Last Crisis.–As Christ was glorified on the day of Pentecost, so will He again be glorified in the closing work of the gospel, when He shall prepare a people to stand the final test, in the closing conflict of the great controversy (RH Nov. 29, 1892).  {7BC 983.8}

:31: Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

WHAT WE EAT WE BECOME

 

Why did God allow Meat eating?   

 

The first time the children of Israel ate meat after the exodus is recorded in Numbers chapter 11. Let’s examine this chapter and note the events that transpired therein:

 

“And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?”

(Num 11:4)

 

“We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick”

(Num 11:5)

 

Through the many years as slaves in Egypt, eating flesh meat became a common thing to do. If you notice, they mentioned the fish, and then they mentioned some vegetables, but their question shows what they really wanted:

 

“Who shall give us flesh to eat?”

 

Again they cried at Moses, “give us flesh, that we may eat” –verse 13.

 

One will notice while reading through this whole chapter that God did not really want to give them the flesh meat for their diet. In fact, as they cried in their lust for flesh meat, God told them that they will get their desire; in fact, they will get a whole month of meat, even until it leaks from their noses (verses’ 19-20). So the Lord blew a strong wind, and in came the meat they so desired. Verse 31 says that the Lord brought them quail, and while the meat was yet in between their teeth, the Lord sent a plague, and they all died (verse 33). Take note reader, that the meat these people ate was not unclean meat, but rather clean meat according to the clean/unclean laws of Leviticus 11. Would God give them an unclean animal to eat? Yet, to show them he did not want them eating meat at all, whether clean or unclean, he allowed them to have the lust of their hearts, and they reaped what they sowed, sickness and death.

 

 

The clean/unclean foods: Laws God did not desire

 

Within the writing of the prophet Ezekiel, we read the following:

 

“Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live.” (Ezekiel 20:25)

 

What would you say were the laws God gave to the children of Israel that he did not really want to give them? Let’s look at three of the most basic of those laws and see if these are it:

 

The Sabbath: Because the immediate context of the whole chapter of Ezekiel 20 seems to be more about the Sabbath, I decided to comment on this one first.

 

Was God displeased with giving them the Sabbath day law? The verses in this same chapter immediately say “no.” First, the verse says “statutes” and “judgments” in the plural sense. There is only one seventh day Sabbath. Second, verses before show how God really did want them to observe the Sabbath, because it was to be a “sign” that God is the one who sanctifies them (verses 12; 20). The Sabbath is also seen to continue on forever. Evidently, the saints of God will forever observe it even in the New Heavens and the New Earth (Isaiah 66:23). This is proof that the Sabbath has not been abolished, and that God in Ezekiel 20:25 is not speaking about the Sabbath. How could God regret giving them the Sabbath but allow it to continue forever?

 

 

The 10 Commandments: These laws, recorded first in Exodus 20, set moral rules for the believer to live by. “Thou shalt not murder” and “thou shalt not steal” are certainly laws we wouldn’t dream of saying God did not want to give. Each law within the 10 commandments has a moral application to everyone of us. When we violate the first four of these laws, which most recognize as laws referring to mans relationship with God, we sin against our selves, because it is a sin to break Gods law (1 John 3:4). When we sin against ourselves we risk damaging our relationship and we offend God who made us in his image, thus losing our salvation because we have not turned away from sin. When we violate the rest of the 10 commandments we commit sins against our neighbors, which will again cause us to hurt ourselves spiritually and most of the times physically in the process. Was God displeased with giving these laws? The logical answer is no.

 

The Feast days: Time and place must be considered. When God through Ezekiel penned those words in Ezekiel 20:25, the feast days, while God found more pleasure in obedience (1 Samuel 15:22), he did in fact wanted them to observe them as laws because he desired them to see something special within these feast days, namely, that Jesus is the true lamb of God, which would be sacrificed for them in the not so distant future (John 1:29; 1 Corinthians 5:7). Today, these feast days can still teach us much, but we know that they have all found their end at the cross, as Jesus is our paschal lamb, and so on. Yet in the times of Ezekiel, God wanted them to observe these feasts.

 

The only possible laws the Lord must have been speaking about in Ezekiel 20:25 would have to be the laws of clean and unclean meats as listed in Leviticus 11. The following are the reasons why this must be so:

 

-Reason 1: God has never desired the death of any of his creatures.

-Reason 2: As shown in Numbers 11, God does not desire our eating or neither clean nor unclean animals.

-Reason 3: Animal eating has never been part of the original plan for mankind’s health, and God desires we return to his original plan.

 

Every other law, for that time, were laws God ordered to be kept for some reason as to maintain order within the theocratic nation of Israel (as in the civil penalty laws -we believe God did not desire these as well) or for moral issues relating to salvation. The clean/unclean animal’s laws have nothing to do with the maintaining of a nation, nor with anything moral at that. Simply put, animal eating is just not necessary. We can get sufficient nutrients from the natural foods of the earth without eating flesh meat. The most convincing evidence is in the fact that meat eating came into the picture after the fall, and not before.

Aside

  Dr Milton Teske, MD

On July 6, 1988 the worst mass-poisoning event in Britain’s history took place when a truck driver delivering 20 tons of aluminum sulfate to an unmanned water treatment facility accidently dumped it into the wrong tank (they used the same key for all the padlocks at the facility). The water supply to the town of Camelford became contaminated with high levels of aluminum.

Many of the residents developed urinary complaints, painful joints, blistering and peeling of skin, hair turning blue or green, vomiting and diarrhea, fibromyalgia, and short-term memory loss. When trying to clean the tank a few weeks later, they flushed it into the local river resulting in the death of over 60,000 salmon and trout. Aluminum concentrates in the bones and brain, and its main long term effects are seen here. Significant increases in dementia and Alzheimer’s disease were seen over the following years and autopsies showed high levels of aluminum in the bones and brains of these victims.

A very common Substance

The element aluminum (atomic number 13) is the third most abundant element on the surface of the earth — only oxygen and silicon are more prevalent. 

It is an extremely reactive element so it rarely occurs in nature as pure aluminum metal but rather as some aluminum compound having already undergone some chemical reaction with other substances. Its properties as a soft, light weight, corrosion resistant, electrical conducting metal have led to its being extensively used in automobile and aircraft design as well as thousands of other products we use everyday.

Not For use in h u m a n s

In spite of its abundance in the world around us, aluminum does not naturally occur in the human body. Indeed we can find no life form on planet earth that uses aluminum. Although many trace elements are needed by various enzymes for special purposes, we can find no animal or plant or microbe that uses aluminum for even a single enzyme or chemical reaction. Apparently when God created life, he saw no use for this highly reactive element in all of the complex chemical reactions that make up life. Aluminum can actually be quite toxic inside of the body.  If taken into the body, the kidneys try their best to eliminate it in the urine as quick as possible. Patients with renal insufficiency or failure are at a much higher risk for aluminum toxicity. We know that aluminum compounds can be absorbed through the skin or from the food we eat or the water we drink or absorbed from the smoke of cigarettes, or they can be injected directly into the body. These compounds can be transported in the blood and concentrated in the bones and the brain where they do most of their long-term damage.  We find high levels of aluminum in the brains of patients with dementia.

Aluminum in vaccines

Vaccines are made from viruses and bacteria — usually killed and broken into pieces, but occasionally alive, and your body recognizes these as foreign invaders and builds up an immune reaction against them. Today, all modern vaccines also contain, in addition to these foreign particles, adjuvants. Adjuvants are toxic chemicals (such as aluminum, mercury, and MSG) whose purpose is to fire up the immune system to make it more reactive.  So a much smaller amount of the actual foreign particles need to be used to get an immune response — thus significantly decreasing the cost to the pharmaceutical company to mass produce lots of the vaccine. The aluminum compounds from the vaccine are absorbed and concentrated in the cells of the brain including the microglia. Microglias are the immune cells whose job is to support and protect the neurons. Aluminum hyper activates the microglia cells which begin to pour out large amounts of toxic inflammatory substances that can be damaging to the neurons.

A brain specialist, Dr. Blaylock, has written extensively on the risks to the brain from the aluminum contained in these injections in the development of autism and dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.  “Studies have shown that these adjuvants, from a single vaccine, can cause immune over activation for as long as two years. This means that the brain microglia remain active, continuously pouring out destructive chemicals. In fact, one study found that a single injection of an immune activating substance could cause brain immune overactivation for over a year. This is very destructive.” 

By the time a baby is 18 months old, they will have received 26 shots vaccinating them against 16 different diseases and will have been injected with 5,000 mcg (5mg) of aluminum.

Pharmaceutical companies and government agencies claim that these vaccines are safe and are well worth the risk. However, it must be noted in their favor that over the last century vaccines have probably saved more lives than all other medications combined. Small pox has been eliminated, and tetanus and polio are almost never seen today. These are devastating and deadly diseases. For example, consider polio — even if your child survived, they would be ruined for life with major paralysis and other permanent nerve damage — this is a disease so terrible that it is probably worth certain risks to protect against it. So before we rush to throw out all the vaccines, to be fair let us consider some other sources of aluminum intake …

Other sources of aluminum

Cooking acidic foods like tomato sauce in uncoated aluminum pans will release aluminum into the food exposing us to similar amounts of aluminum as in vaccines.  Smoking cigarettes will expose us to seven times more aluminum than vaccines do.

Aluminum paralyzes the cells that make cerebral spinal fluid — the clear liquid that surrounds our brains — but it also paralyzes the cells in our sweat glands that make sweat, and so now it is added to all  “antiperspirant” deodorants.  Using antiperspirant deodorants will expose you to 12 times more aluminum than getting all your vaccinations. 

Large amounts of aluminum compounds are found in antacids that are freely used to relieve the burning caused by gastritis and ulcers. The recommended dose of aluminum hydroxide on the label of Maalox Extra Strength is 8,000 mg/day. This is enough to seriously deplete body phosphorus levels (the aluminum hydroxide binds to phosphorus preventing it from being absorbed). If you drink a glass of orange juice or take a calcium citrate supplement with your antacid you will increase aluminum absorption into your blood by 10 times (1,000%).Shellfish, an unclean meat that should never be consumed, is very high in aluminum from contamination in the sea. Many baking powders use aluminum compounds to cause a chemical reaction, resulting in little gas bubbles to make baked goods rise. Aluminum compounds do not cause the bitter taste that regular baking soda does and so is more

frequently used. Foods with significant aluminum levels from baking powders are: flour tortillas, muffins, doughnuts, cookies, pancakes, waffles, cupcakes, cakes, pastries, etc. They typically contain about 5mg to 15mg per muffin or serving of cake.  Perhaps this may be one of the reasons why God instructed an angel to warn his remnant people that they should completely avoid the use of baking powder and that they were not to eat of these baked goods.

The greatest Source of aluminum is …

But the winner of the prize for the highest level of aluminum is American cheese! Sodium aluminum phosphate is the most common substance used as an emulsifying agent in the processing of all processed cheeses. Almost all cheese sold in the grocery store is a processed cheese. If it is a crumbly cheese, it is probably aluminum-free, but if you can slice it or grate it or melt it — it has been processed by emulsification. This process surrounds every microscopic droplet of fat in the cheese with a layer of this aluminum compound that gives the cheese that desirable, soft, smooth, easily-sliceable texture, and it melts soft without separating so it can be used in a grilled cheese sandwich or any other place you would like to melt or grate some cheese.

Sodium aluminum phosphate (SALP) has been labeled as GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA, meaning that no safety studies need to be done nor is there any regulation of its safety for use in food.  And because it is considered part of the processing of the cheese rather than as an ingredient, it is not required to be listed as an ingredient on the label. 

Processed cheese is typically 3% sodium aluminum phosphate — that makes it the number one source of aluminum in our diet. The average American will absorb 30 times more aluminum into his blood from eating cheese than he would get from vaccination injections. Giving your child a grilled cheese sandwich is about the same as injecting him with 12 vaccinations.

Perhaps this is yet another reason why God sent His angel to say to His people living in the last days of earth’s history:  “cheese should never be introduced into the stomach” and  “it is wholly unfit for food.” R e m e m b e r, aluminum has no place in the biology of any form of life on this earth. It would be well for us to avoid it as much as possible.

FEW WILL LISTEN

God Has Sent Warnings, but Few Listen, July 3
And it shall come to pass at that time that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and punish the men who are settled in complacency, who say in their heart, “The Lord will not do good, nor will He do evil.” Zephaniah 1:12, NKJV. BLJ 197.1
We are near the close of time. I have been shown that the retributive judgments of God are already in the land. The Lord has given us warning of the events about to take place. Light is shining from His Word; yet darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people. “When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them …; and they shall not escape.” BLJ 197.2
It is our duty to inquire the cause of this terrible darkness, that we may shun the course by which men and women have brought upon themselves so great delusion. God has given the world an opportunity to learn and to obey His will. He has given them, in His Word, the light of truth; He has sent them warning, counsel, and admonition; but few will obey His voice. Like the Jewish nation, the majority, even of professed Christians, pride themselves on their superior advantages, but make no returns to God for these great blessings. BLJ 197.3
In infinite mercy a last warning message has been sent to the world, announcing that Christ is at the door and calling attention to God’s broken law. But as the antediluvians rejected with scorn the warning of Noah, so will the pleasure lovers of today reject the message of God’s faithful servants. The world pursues its unvarying round, absorbed as ever in its business and its pleasures, while the wrath of God is about to be visited on the transgressors of His law. BLJ 197.4

Our compassionate Redeemer, foreseeing the perils that would surround His followers at this time, has given them special warning: “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”—Testimonies for the Church 5:99, 100. BLJ 197.5
